Erin Dwyer, a freshman at Sequim High School, was recognized as the Sequim Sunrise Rotary’s February Student of the Month.
She lives in Port Angeles and came to the area with her family 11 years ago from Fresno, Calif. She was joined by her parents, Susan and Keith and her teacher, Mark Knudson who nominated Erin.

Knudson told the Rotarians that Dwyer was encouraged to apply for an AP class, which is very uncommon for a freshman. She was accepted and has a 4.0 grade-point average. He also said she mentors another student and always is willing to help and step in when there is a leadership vacancy in any of her classes.
Dywer is active in track, Future Business Leaders of America and the International Club. She enjoys sports, playing the piano, skiing, reading and technology.
Dwyer’s plans for the future include applying to several out of state universities to major in law and specialize in civil and immigration law and then continue her education at a law school for another four years.
